Hi Mike, I tried the 14:29 pass today. I was able to upload the heater off and test beacon commands twice, and got confirmations twice. I received no other signals from the satellite for the entire pass. Wish I had better news. Bob W1ICW

Hi Mike, I sent those commands at 1947 UT this morning and all accepted OK. No beacon heard but low elevation short pass. Alan, ZL2BX
No beacon on second pass. Sent tones without any obvious response. Xmitted from 2106Z- 2108Z. I do think my first copy indicated that the heater might be off?? Robert in Honolulu.
